    Good!!

    I hope they show plenty of illegal immigration enforcement operations.

    It will show the entire country just what LIARS illegals and their advocates are about being allegedly terrorized, brutalized, and otherwise mistreated by ICE agents.

    I hope that this show will show how hard our Border Patrol and I.C.E. agents work for us and what they have to deal with out in the field.

    The Commercial for Homeland Security USA

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ErzbEHgJcq0

    I hope this doesn't turn into propaganda to convince America that the border is secure. Create a false sense of security.

    Don't get me wrong, the BP works their tails off but I would hate to see their hardwork turned into look, we've secured the border, now we can give documents to the illegal aliens.

    The current Democratic talking point for the planned Amnesty AKA "Comprehensive Immnigration Reform", is "secure the border first"(like you've seen on TV), and then "document those already here" because "we have to know who they are"...

    Same bad bill.

    'Homeland' Gets Real with US Border Patrol

    ABC is putting the finishing touches on its controversial show, "Homeland Security USA."

    The new, 13-episode series will track US border guards as they're tasked with trying to stop people from sneaking into the country - by themselves and sometimes with contraband.

    "They're ordinary men and women working against an epic landscape," executive producer Arnold Shapiro ("Big Brother") wrote in a prepared statement regarding the Homeland Security officers who appear on the show.

    Think of a show like "Cops" - if it focused entirely on one of the hottest of hot-button issues in the country.

    "They have a job that is dangerous, difficult and always unpredictable," Shapiro wrote.

    "What viewers will see is powerful, dramatic, amazing and emotional - with unexpected moments of humor."

    ABC officials and the show's producers have declined repeated requests for interviews about what viewers will see, specifically, in "Homeland Security USA."

    What's apparent, based on information posted on ABC's Web site, is that each episode will hopscotch around the US to follow various border-related incidents.

    The debut episode (airing Jan. 6), will leap-frog from Los
    Angeles International Airport - where a "voluptuous 20-year-old woman arrives from Switzerland with no working papers but a suitcase full of titillating surprises" - to a Washington State border crossing where smugglers are caught transporting drugs hidden in baby diapers.

    Other segments include a search to find six undocumented

    immigrants lost in the desert outside of Tucson, Ariz. and items seized at an International Mail Center in Carson, Calif., including a "delicacy" discovered to be barbecued bats.

    Shapiro has admitted that the show will paint the Dept. of
    Homeland Security in a positive light - a move that has enraged
    some critics, who branded the show "propaganda" shortly after ABC picked it up last spring.

    "I'm sure this will be as accurate as the rest of 'reality' TV," one angry blogger wrote when the news first broke.

    "I love investigative journalism, but that's not what we're
    doing," Shapiro told a reporter in the only interview he has
    done to promote the series.

    "This show is heartening. It makes you feel good about these people who are doing their best to protect us."

    REGION: Reality TV show to depict homeland security

    Human rights groups concerned about depiction of immigrants

    By EDWARD SIFUENTES - Staff Writer | Tuesday, December 30, 2008 5:37 PM PST



    Shown is a scene from "Homeland Security USA," a new reality TV show about the nation's Department of Homeland Security that debuts Jan. 6. Portions of the series were filmed along the border in San Diego.


    A reality TV show set to begin airing next week looks at the nation's Department of Homeland Security, but it's already raising concerns among some human rights groups, who say the series does not appear to present a full picture of life on the U.S.-Mexico border.

    The show, called "Homeland Security USA," which was partly filmed in San Diego, follows the men and women who protect the nation's land borders, airports and seaports. But some immigrant rights advocates and Web bloggers say the series appears to be nothing more than propaganda.

    The show's producer, Arnold Shapiro, has said in news releases that the series simply aims to tell the story of the employees of the department.

    "They are ordinary men and women working against an epic landscape," Shapiro said in a press statement. "They have a job that is dangerous, difficult and always unpredictable."

    Shapiro could not be reached for comment.

    "Homeland Security USA," which includes 13 hourlong episodes, is set to begin airing Jan. 6 on ABC affiliates.

    The show is billed as having "unprecedented access" to the agencies that make up the department, including the U.S. Border Patrol, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection.

    The Department of Homeland Security was created after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to better coordinate the nation's efforts against future attacks. It brought 22 agencies and their 218,000 employees under one department in the largest government shuffle since the Department of Defense was created in 1947.

    Christian Ramirez, a national coordinator with the American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker human rights organization, said his group is concerned the series may be one-sided and gloss over the reasons that lead hundreds of thousands of people to risk their lives crossing the border illegally each year.

    "The biggest fear is that it will depict migrants in an unfair manner," Ramirez said.

    Without including all sides of the volatile topic of illegal immigration, the show's producers run the risk of fueling anti-immigrant sentiment among some people, Ramirez said.

    Enrique Morones, who heads the San Diego-based immigrant rights group Border Angels, called the reality show "propaganda."

    Ramirez said his group sent a letter to the network asking for a private screening before the show airs.

    In an e-mail reply from a network official provided to the North County Times by the American Friends Service Committee, the network declined the request for an early screening.

    "We appreciate that there are a variety of ways to explore this issue, and a variety of perspectives from which to do so," wrote Brad Jamison, ABC's vice president of corporate initiatives. "However, the current format of the show serves the producers' intention to tell more personal stories of some of the challenges facing the thousands of people who work for the Department of Homeland Security."

    Jamison could not be reached via e-mail or through his assistant. A publicist for the show declined to comment.

    William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration, a group that advocates for stricter immigration controls, said the groups opposed to the show are trying to censor content that might show the chaos at the border.

    "I think that any show that would show the truth about the border will come under attack," Gheen said.


    Some Web bloggers also have been critical of the show, saying it lacks a critical perspective and instead portrays immigration enforcement agents as "heroes."

    "While the show will highlight the main mission of the department's 218,000 employees, it will likely not focus on the less flattering incidents, like the DHS official arrested for hiring illegal immigrants, the department's challenges with government contracting or the inability of airport screeners to unionize," wrote Ed O'Keefe, a blogger for The Washington Post.

    In one promotional sneak preview, the show depicts agents with the Transportation Security Administration searching through a woman's luggage and finding belly dancer's outfits. The woman tells the agents that she intends to work as a belly dancer, but agents tell her that it is illegal to do so without a work permit.

    In another preview, Customs and Border Protection agents find drugs packed into the front bumper of a car as the driver attempts to enter the U.S. through a checkpoint at El Paso. The driver is shown being led away in handcuffs by agents.

    At the port of entry in San Ysidro, "a fake license plate tips a border officer to a life-threatening situation," according to promotional material, but the media release does not say what the situation was.

    Michael Fisher, chief of the Border Patrol's San Diego sector, said part of the show was filmed in San Diego last year, but he said he was unaware of what specifically was filmed or when it would be shown. He said during a recent press conference that his main concern was that the agency be portrayed accurately.

    "We just want to make sure that they get the facts straight," Fisher said. "We didn't want some Hollywood description of what our mission is."

    ABC'S NEW SERIES, "HOMELAND SECURITY USA," PREMIERES TUESDAY, JANUARY 6 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET)

    Series Gives Viewers an Unprecedented Look at the Agencies and People Who Protect Our Country

    Every day the men and women of the Department of Homeland Security patrol more than 100,000 miles of America's borders. This territory includes airports, seaports, land borders, international mail centers, the open seas, mountains, deserts and even cyberspace. Now viewers will get an unprecedented look at the work of these men and women while they use the newest technology to safeguard our country and enforce our laws, in "Homeland Security USA," which debuts with the episode "This is Your Car on Drugs," TUESDAY, JANUARY 6 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

    Comprised of 13 hour-long episodes shot entirely on location throughout the United States, "Homeland Security USA" is based on a popular Australian series now in its fifth season. Produced by Oscar and Emmy-winner Arnold Shapiro ("Scared Straight," "Big Brother"), the series takes cameras into situations never before seen on television, with each episode covering eight or more locations on the "front lines" where the officers and agents work each day. They have a job that is dangerous, difficult and always unpredictable. These aren't heroes. They're average men and women working against an epic landscape. The Department's missions include everything from vetting adoption papers and checking visitors' passports to intercepting undocumented immigrants, drugs and other contraband, and stopping potential terrorists trying to cross our borders. What viewers will see is powerful, dramatic, unforgettable and emotional, with unexpected moments of humor.

    The premiere episode, "This is Your Car on Drugs," takes viewers inside some of the busiest international entry points to the U.S. At Los Angeles International Airport, a voluptuous 20-year-old woman arrives from Switzerland with no working papers but a suitcase full of titillating surprises! In the Pacific Northwest, at the Blaine, Washington border crossing, smugglers attempt to foil DHS canines by packing narcotics in baby diapers. Along the border between the U.S. and Mexico in the scorching heat of the desert outside of Tucson, Border Patrol agents race the clock to find six undocumented immigrants lost in the barren wilderness. In one of the most dramatic stories at the San Ysidro, California border crossing, a fake license plate tips a border officer off to a life-threatening situation. Meanwhile, there are some unusual illegal items intercepted at the International Mail Center in Carson, California, including a "delicacy" officers are shocked to discover is actually barbecued bats.

    "Homeland Security USA" has been given unprecedented access to the agencies of the Department of Homeland Security and has the full cooperation of CBP (Customs & Border Protection) including CBP's Border Patrol; ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement); TSA (Transportation Security Administration); USCG (United States Coast Guard) and USCIS (United States Citizenship & Immigration Services).

    The series is executive produced by Arnold Shapiro. Paul J. Coyne is supervising producer, and Gigi D'Amore is coordinating producer. "Homeland Security USA" is a Nate and Lil Production.
